    Wow, I post a question and Price Pfister itself wants to help. Next, President Obama will be weighing in.

    Actually, I found one sold individually at "blue". I put it on, but found that when I screwed the stem back into the wall, I could barely turn the diverter handle anymore (maybe 1/16th of a turn). ...

    I think you're right! I don't remember seeing a loose washer on the diverter, and it is a Price Pfister.

    Shower Diverter not diverting fully

    I recently bought a house that has a tub/shower with the 3-stem configuration (hot, cold, diverter). All three stems leaked from the stems, plus when the diverter was switched to shower mode a...

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I don't mind the cost of the bronze one, but it's a PVC line -- how do I connect it?

    Thank you.

    Brand-New 1/2" PVC ball valve is leaking

    Just put in a solvent-weld 1/2" PVC ball valve as a shut-off valve on my sprinkler system. It shuts off great but when I turn it on, a trickle of water comes out of the handle. Nothing to do but to...

    I installed 2 Eco Drakes at my mother-in-law's house about 7 months ago, and I realized I had not weighed-in on them here on the boards.

    I won't belabor the point, but just wanted to say that...

    Aquia II for 11.25"?

    I installed 2 Aquia II's in my old house with a 11.5" rough-in. I can't remember but I think there was still a tiny bit of space near the wall. My new house has a 11.25" rough-in, and I really...

    Why I Think Americast Tubs Are Junk

    When researching replacement bathtubs on this site, I was surprised at the generally positive reviews that Americast received. When I removed my old Americast tub last January after barely 11 years...

    This is very intriguing because I was under the impression that it's virtually impossible for one of those to leak! It just seems like it is such a snug fit, especially when tightened. Clearly...
